About Us

Women’s Global Health Network was founded in 2011 by Nupur Garg and Amanda Fornal. Their goal is to create a tool that will connect healthcare providers with women from underserved populations who are suffering from non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

Currently the organization is researching the most effective and valuable ways to communicate with healthcare providers and populations in need. This research will be used to design and develop a web based tool.

Women’s Global Health Network’s long term goal is to plan and execute studies in order to create reusable methodologies for the prevention of NCDs in women globally.

Mission

To maximize the accessibility of healthcare and prevention education to all women in the world.
